You might: Hot pressed oil contains insignificant amount of nut proteins. In nut allergy, you are allergic to the protein of that particular nut. You get reaction to the nut by eating it, not through the skin in general. If the body lotion that you want to use does not have the oil from the nut that you are allergic to, you should be fine. If it does, the risk is really low. See a local allergist for details ...Read more

I am severely allergic to shellfish. I was prescribed an EpiPen (epinephrine). I never had to use one yet. How do you know if you need to use it? Does it reverse?
